SC Magazine: BitCoin forum hacked by donor‎

A hacker has used a zero day flaw to steal email addresses, hashed passwords and read personal messages from the bitcointalk.org forum.

Forum administrators said the attacker gained root access and was able to run arbitrary PHP code.

The attacker gained access on 3 September and was not detected until the attacker injected “annoying JavaScript” into the forum pages a week later.
